7 eleven alcohol

7-Eleven to start serving alcohol and wine with in-store restaurant service in Ontario

Convenience store giant 7-Eleven has officially secured a liquour sales licence from the Alcohol and Gaming Comission of Ontario to serve chilled beer, wines and cooler at a restaurant in one of its stores. 

The licensed restaurant is located inside a 7-Eleven store in Leamington, Ont., and there's plenty of similar stores coming as part of a wider provincial expansion. 

The licensed 7-Eleven in Leamington features a full remodel, enclosed dining area, and menu, serving up hot plates such as chicken strips, chicken sandwiches and potato wedges. 

Similar licensed restaurants already exist at several 7-Eleven locations in Alberta, and the convenience store chain is already in the works to have more locations in Ontario. 

All alcohol products at these 7-Eleven licensed restaurants will be secured in locked cabinets and coolers and will be available for purchase between 12 p.m. and 11 p.m. 

Ontario's first 7-Eleven restaurant is located at 138 Erie Street in Leamington.
